8:14 am
regional collision reporting center will take care of the paperwork. modeled after a successful program in canada, the roanoke valley center will be the first of its kind in the country. howard hall/roanoke county police chief: what we anticipate this to do is free up officer time that would normally be taken with completing those reports and allow us to use them for higher priorities. elected leaders in roanoke, roanoke county and salem still have to vote on the proposal. and it could be several months before the new center is up and running in the roanoke valley. changes at the state level are lowering the cost of repairs needed for a bedford county dam. wdbj7's tim saunders tells us the change comes after a push from lynchburg lawmakers and liberty university, which owns one of the affected lakes. water levels at ivy lake in forest have been low for more than two years, because state regulators have been concerned about the lake's dam. the structure is one of hundreds across the state that were deemed inadequate to handle a

lee beaumont/senior auxiliary services: "the old values were very unrealistic." says lee beaumont, a construction manager at liberty owns ivy lake. estimating that a maximum rainfall of 35 inches could fall during one storm at ivy lake and it was forcing l-u to make around 2-million dollars worth of changes to the lake's dam. charles spence/senior vice president for construction planning: "we looked throughout the whole state and the whole country. we couldn't find where they were getting the 35 inches." l-u leaders worked with state lawmakers like kathy byron and tom garrett to change the way state regulators view dams and their potential to fail. the result is a policy change that will impact lakes across the state. david dowling/deputy director: "from a scientific perspective it's monumentally better." david dowling is a deputy director for the department of conservation and recreation, which oversees virginia's dams. starting march 23rd, the d-c-r will be using new data collected to judge the maximum amount of rain that might fall around a lake and whether it might cause a dam to fail.
8:16 am
who were previously required to make changes, might not have to make any upgrades. dowling: "we're hoping it will be very beneficial to many of them along the way." for liberty the change has lowered the cost of upgrading the dam by as much as 40 percent. beaumont: "when we saw the new values that came out and the implications for not only ivy lake but all dam owners across the state, we were very pleased." tim saunders, wdbj7. about 800 teachers were in roanoke to talk about ways to make stem courses enjoyable and understandable to students. the whole mission of the virginia children's engineering convention is to get kids interested in pursuing careers in engineering, math or the sciences. yesterday, stations were set up to show instructors that those subjects can be taught in new and unique ways. some vendors showcased items kids enjoy like legos to demonstrate hands-on, real-life problem solving. joan harper- neely/teacher: "we
